Buying the Auto-Magic
The Auto-Magic filter is available directly from us and from our dealers. It is sold as either a single sized, internal mounting gel filter (AM) or an external mounting solid filter (AMS) available in a variety of sizes and mount types (see below).
All our filters are sold with detailed instructions on how to shoot with filters (and to quote Martin Edge in the 4th Edition of The Underwater Photographer "I cannot emphasise enough that by following these guidelines, you will get the most out of the Magic Filter").

External Mounting Auto-Magic filters - AMS
Our external mounting filters are made in optical quality acryllic (3mm thick) and are suitable for external mounting underwater. Please treat filters with care to maintain their optical performance. The external filters are supplied with a anti-static, lint free cloth for cleaning. External filters are packed only as singles and there is no discount for multiple orders. Given that new cameras and underwater housings are released all the time, we reserve the right to introduce and discontinue filter sizes without warning. You can pay for your Magic Filters easily and securely online either using your credit card or your PayPal account.
Our external mounting filters are divided into four types:
1) most popular are the threaded screw on filters - buy this if your housing can accept screw on filters or a mount that can accept screw on filters and other accessories. The housing will usually have the filter size in mm printed on the threaded surround of the port of it will be listed in the instructions. You can download a list of some popular housing filter sizes here in PDF and XL formats. If using these filters internally - the filter size is again written in mm on the lens surround or on the lens cap. Many accesory lens adaptors now use the standard 67mm filter thread and can be used to fit the AMS-67 to your housing (more).
2) 100 x 100mm filter sheets, which can be used for a vareity of housings, or even cut by the user to suit their needs.
3) slot in filters - at present we only do one size of slot in filter - designed for the filter slot on Amphibico video housings.
4) flip filters - these are designed for flip up filter holders inside some video housings
